Re: David Cronenberg

David Cronenberg is a personal idol, so I can't wait for any of his movies to come out, no matter how subpar the trailers might be (and actually, I don't watch trailers, so I am not one to judge).

My opinion of Robert Pattinson is not high (I've seen a couple of those Twilight things, unfortunately), but if anyone can church him up, it's Cronenberg. I have high hopes.

Looks like Oscar bait but still looks decent to me. Fassbinder is possibly the most interesting actor working today so because he's in it my interest spiked a little.

I haven't seen to many of his films, other then a History of Violence which i thought was decent but nothing great.

This trailer seemed pretty good as far as set/costume design and cinematography. I think it could be a very interesting story with a possibility for a great script (Christopher Hampton).... if properly executed with great acting, it could be a hit.

I'll be looking forward to checking it out.

Yeah, I can definitely see this happening.

Check out Hunger (2008).
